In just a few days, on October 29th, many millions of non-Catholic Christians will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On that day, in 1517, priestly monk Martin Luther posted his “Ninety-Five Theses” that came thundering down upon his church, the Roman Catholic Church. This document consisted of 95 sentences that mostly condemned the Church’s practice of indulgences and declared that salvation is a gift of God based on believing in Jesus as Savior. It occurred in Wittenberg,… Read more

Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) is regarded as one of the two greatest physicists and mathematicians in all of human history, the other being Albert Einstein. Newton is most known for formulating the laws of motion and universal gravitation. But Isaac Newton wrote more about Christian theology and alchemy (much of which is today regarded as genuine chemistry) than he did of science and mathematics, yet this has been largely unknown until recent decades. This public ignorance about Isaac Newton is… Read more

I posted one hour ago that NBC reported this morning that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attended Pentagon meeting this summer in which he called his boss President Donald Trump “a moron” and when the press questioned him about it just hours ago, he did not deny it and replied that he would not address such petty things. That is a tacit admission. Now, the question arises whether or not President Trump will feel it necessary to tell Tillerson,… Read more

Two hours ago, NBC reported U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson this summer attended a Pentagon meeting in which he called U.S. President Donald Trump “a moron.” Just minutes ago, Tillerson was questioned by the press about this, which was televised. Secretary Tillerson responded, “I’m not going to address petty things like that.” That response appears to be a tacit admission that the report is true. NBC also reported that Secretary Tillerson “threatened” to quit his post. Recall that Tillerson… Read more

Days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, San Juan’s Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz criticized the U.S. in its relief effort to assist Puerto Rico. (San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico.) She was strongly supported in this accusation by U.S. army, three-star, retired Lieutenant General Russel Honore. The U.S. had just made him director of the its relief effort there in Puerto Rico. He called the U.S. effort “a slow response” and provided evidence for this allegation. General Honore had… Read more

Mark Zuckerberg–the Jewish founder and CEO of the amazingly successful and ubiquitous Facebook–apologized yesterday on Yom Kippur for how his company may have unwittingly aided Russians trying to thwart the U.S. presidential campaign last year. Zuckerberg said, “For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better,” he wrote in a brief post. “For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask for forgiveness and I… Read more

Six days ago, in defiance of the Iraq government, Iraqi Kurds held a referendum vote to secede from Iraq and form their own nation. The vote was an overwhelming 93% in favor of seceding. Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi condemned the vote. Turkey and the U.S. also ware against the referendum. It remains to be seen what will become of this Kurdish effort to form their own nation separate from Iraq. The Kurdish people live in Kurdistan–a name given to a… Read more

I first developed my “self-supporting book” invention in March, 2009. (It wasn’t any good and went through several improvements over the years. I now own two patents for two different embodiments of this invention. See “My Second Patent,” posted on this blog on September, 30, 2017.) My patent attorney filed a patent application for this invention months later in the same year, 2009. We also filed an application for the trademark “A Triangle Book” for this invention. My patent attorney… Read more

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office recently granted me my second patent for “a self-supporting book.” My trademark that I own for it is “A Triangle Book.” I had a website of that name, took it offline, and will now put it back online soon. But it’s purpose is mostly just to inform the book publishing industry, not the public. However, you can learn from it what I’m trying to do. This is my second patent for “a self-supporting book.”… Read more
